“Everyone always talks about taking their photography to the next level. What does that actually mean?”

In our newest video at COOPH, renowned photographer Benjamin Von Wong gives you an inside look into his most popular projects to prove that taking your work to the next level doesn’t have to be so complicated. There are plenty of simple ways to start—from using a reflector which adds wind to your image to using flour which enhances motion to using a UV light which creates extra dimensions to your shot. Start small, and work your way up from there. To take these simple techniques to the next level, you can use a funnel and coffee creamer to create awesome explosions, or take a PVC pipe, sprinklers, and a little bit of garden hose and create an amazing rain machine, or find the most epic backdrop you can think of for dramatic photos.

Just hit play to watch the video below to see what we mean, and get inspired with Benjamin’s personal tips and tricks!
